Poured from brown bottle to a weizen.

A - The beer pouts a copper/amber color. Perfectly clear. Nice 1.5 finger white bubbly head. Good retention and thick lacing.

S - True to style with a hint of clove and fruity lemony character, yeast provides a nice balance on the nose a hint of spice.

T/M - Fruity from the get go with tones of banana and clove. A nice solid malt backbone with medium body. Very smooth. Moderately carbonated. Clove flavors intensify near the end. Mild bitterness.

O - Good representation of the style. I am not a huge Hefeweizen fan but this is a solid beer.

Poured a hazy orange/gold color from a 11.2 oz bottle, with ABV and 'best-by' date clearly marked on the label.
Towering head that does not want to go anywhere. Dissipates very slowly and leaves behind some really nice lace.
Aroma is a wonderful blend of fruity esters, banana being the prominent one with hints of clove, some sweetness and spice.
Taste compliments the aroma perfectly. All the aroma components make their presence felt on the tongue. This is just a delicious brew; crisp, clean and easy to drink. Perfect for a hot, summer day. Great drinkability and mouthfeel.
One of the best hefe's out there, and a must-try for anyone who enjoys a good hefe.
Highly recommended.

Pour - brilliant straw color with some golden hues and a perfect inch of stark white head on top. Clean in appearance without only slight cloudiness.

Aroma - wow. This is where this style really shines and this is a great example of it. Lots of bubblegum, cloves and ripe bananas. All spot on when it comes to aromas for this style. Sweet and tangy and very fragrant.

Taste - soft on the palate with some sweet flavors of caramalized bananas, brown sugar, cloves, honey and other subtle spices. Such a great combination of flavors without being watery or too complex. Hundreds of brewing know-how are evidently at work here.

Overall - excellent example of the style and one that many breweries the world round are aiming to replicate. The aroma is enticing and the flavors are so pronounced for such an uncomplicated beer. Extremely enjoyable and very easy drinking. I'm looking forward to seeing these on shelves again in the summertime.
